Comics: The Entire Marvel Universe Will Be "All-New, All-Different" Post Secret Wars

22 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We've been told Secret Wars won't lead to a full reboot, but by the looks of this latest teaser image from Marvel, we're definitely looking at a complete re-branding at the very least. The below teaser aside, they publisher hasn't released any more details but after Secret Wars when continuity jumps ahead "8 Months Later", expect everything to be "All-New, All-Different". Yay? Here's what Marvel Senior Vice President of Publishing Tom Brevoort had to say about the 8 month time-jump in an interview with Marvel earlier in the week. "In the same way that events jumped forward in time eight months in 'Avengers' and 'New Avengers' during the lead-up to 'Secret Wars,' so too when we enter the new Marvel Universe eight months will have passed for all of the characters as well," he explained. "This provides our creators, even apart from Secret Wars, to drop into exciting new »

In Defence Of... Ang Lee's multi-million dollar psychodrama Hulk

16 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

At the time of writing, Marvel have not yet confirmed a third standalone Hulk movie, but without giving anything away, the closing events of Avengers: Age of Ultron definitely leave that door wide open. With that in mind, it seems like the perfect time to re-appraise ol' greenskin's first big screen outing, Ang Lee's multi-million dollar psychodrama, Hulk.

Released in 2003, Hulk took a total of $132.2 million at the Us box office, just short of its reputed £137 million budget. Though it eventually took over $245 million worldwide, it was perceived as a flop, significantly under-performing compared to the likes of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man or Bryan Singer's X-Men movies. Hulk not box-office Smash, in other words. Critics weren't overly kind either – it earned 62% on review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes, indicating decidedly mixed reviews albeit with a positive slant.

Based on the Marvel comics character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby »

Supergirl: a few thoughts on the trailer criticism

14 May 2015 11:31 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Supergirl upfront has garnered strong reactions online, not all of it positive. Here's a response to its critics...

It's fair to say the Supergirl trailer (actually an "upfront" – a précis of the entire pilot designed to sell the show internally and to advertisers) has attracted a lot of praise. It's also attracted a lot of criticism. But how valid are those criticisms? I'll say now that none of us has any idea whether this show will actually be good or not – I think it will, based on what I've seen – but I don't know. What I do know is that some of the things people are saying about it don't seem fair.

Criticism of the trailer's rom-com influences, perceived cheesiness, comparisons to a certain Saturday Night Live sketch, and complaints that its version of Kara Zor-El isn't (we'll come back to this) a "strong female character" are all problematic, »

Every Avengers: Age Of Ultron Easter Egg Revealed In New Video

7 May 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In typical Marvel fashion, Avengers: Age of Ultron paid tribute to decades’ worth of comic book storylines in the form of Easter eggs peppered throughout the film. While some are easy to spot – like the requisite Stan Lee cameo – others are buried so deep that only the most diehard of fans could catch them.

No matter what camp you’re in, you can now enjoy the cleverness of Joss Whedon and bask in the geekiness of the hidden gems thanks to a new video from Mr. Sunday Movies. Comprehensive and informative, it breaks down all (or at least most) of the easter eggs found in Age of Ultron, while shedding some light on the various seeds Whedon planted inside the blockbuster that will help set up future McU installments, like Captain America: Civil War, Thor: Ragnarok and, of course, both Avengers: Infinity War installments.

Marvel Legend Reveals What Stan Lee Initially "Hated" About 'Age of Ultron' Breakout

1 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Stan Lee is the face of the Marvel Universe, but its summer crown jewel wouldn't exist without Roy Thomas. Thomas and artist John Buscema created key characters featured in Avengers: Age of Ultron, including the titular killer robot, played by James Spader, and the breakout android The Vision (Paul Bettany). He succeeded Lee as Marvel editor in chief and also held key roles at rival DC Comics. But in 1964, Thomas was just a 20-something comic book superfan from Missouri who walked into Lee's office looking for a job. He was already working as an assistant at DC, where he was miserable.

Martha Thomases Reviews Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron

1 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

Lucky for me, it was the “friends and family” screening of Avengers: Age of Ulton.

First of all, I was lucky because I got to go. I was lucky to hear Joe Quesada introduce the film, not only because he was amusing but he was gracious enough to thank the event planners before he thanked the Hollywood bosses. Trust me, as someone who has worked events for more than 20 years, it’s unusual when someone says “Thank you.” He also thanked all the people who worked on the books, the source material for the movies.

And I was lucky because of the audience. The people in Manhattan’s Ziegfeld Theater on Tuesday were Marvel (and Disney) employees, freelancers, and their plus-ones. It was the kind of audience that cheered the coming attractions (Ant-Man), of course. They cheered the created-by credits. They cheered Stan Lee. From their cheers, I could »

Movie Review: Avengers: Age of Ultron

1 May 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The 2015 summer movie season officially kicks off with Avengers: Age of Ultron. Needless to say that the bar has been set pretty damn high here. The prior installment, The Avengers (2012), was a well-received film that also had the third highest gross in history with $1.5 billion in ticket sales. That doesn’t even count all the merchandise the film sold. When critics and fans like your work, then you know the job has been done right. Now, the trick is to pull it off again.

Avengers: Age of Ultron was directed by Joss Whedon, who also directed the prior film. It has already been announced that Whedon will not direct the next film in the series and after the success and time expenditure, roughly half a decade, one can certainly understand that decision. He has already hit the pinnacle by going from fan-boy and cult favorite to the writer/director of »

Film Review: Rousing ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Hits Modern Society’s Central Nervous System

30 April 2015 9:14 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Look. We all know sequels usually suck. And blockbuster films often get panned for overprioritizing special effects at the expense of a well-written story and character development. Even when a story in a big-budget film is redeeming, it’s practically impossible not to shoot holes through it.

Taking three years as a follow up to 2012’s “The Avengers,” “Avengers: Age of James Spader” – I mean, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” – kicks off 2015’s summer blockbuster season in true Hollywood style. Regardless of what he said or she said, you know you’re very likely going to see it in theatres or eventually at home. A perfect film it is not (as most aren’t), but an enjoyable film it definitely is for 141 minutes that certainly don’t feel too long.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

This sequel features a rich story that’s much deeper than surface level, memorable characters that all play »

Michael Davis: The Cosmic Cube Revised: The Perfect Storm

29 April 2015 10:45 PM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

This was originally written for ComicMix. The perfect storm of self doubt (Me??) my paranoid thoughts (yeah, that one fits) prompted me to send it to Bleeding Cool instead.

ComicMix has an article of mine sitting in its cue that’s been sitting there for weeks.

No doubt because of another perfect storm fueled by Murphy’s Law. Just one of those things I’m sure was no one’s fault.

When I saw it still wasn’t up today, my willingness to be This forthcoming evaporating like the last vapors of a meth pipe I pulled the trigger and sent it to Bleeding Cool instead of a kick ass article on Brotherman that will have to wait until next week.

As is my policy I don’t duplicate the same article for BC and Cm but if something’s important enough to me I want it t be seen »

Must watch: Stan Lee's school of cameos

29 April 2015 1:03 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Part Avengers: Age Of Ultron ad, part car commercial, part Marvel love-in. Here's a video intro to Stan Lee's school of cameos...

If you're the type who seeks out every promo for a film before going to see it, you probably saw a large chunk of Avengers: Age Of Ultron before it had even come out. Since then, even more clips have done the rounds. 

It's refereshing, then, to see a Marvel promo that gives nothing away about the slate of upcoming films, but merely celebrates Stan Lee's impressive chops as a cameo performer. Additionally, as we learnt today, there's a fine line between 'cameo acting' and 'acting acting,' which could be a valuable lesson to any budding performers out there.

Prepare yourselves, then, for a trip to Stan Lee's cameo school, featuring lots of familiar faces from Marvel universes old and new (it's also a car ad, »

Marvel’s Stan Lee Teaches Kevin Smith, Michael Rooker Art of Cameo Acting in Audi Commercial (Video)

28 April 2015 6:56 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When it comes to cameos, no one is more experienced than Stan Lee. The co-creator of iconic Marvel comic book characters like Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and the X-Men appeared in a new Audi commercial, in which he teaches several Hollywood stars the subtle art of cameo acting. Lee’s class consists of writer/director/comics superfan Kevin Smith, “Guardians of The Galaxy” star Michael Rooker, and “Sharknado” star Tara Reid. “Incredible Hulk” star Lou Ferrigno makes a cameo himself, as a man looking for an anger management class.

'Age of Ultron' Review: Blockbuster Sequel Offers More of Same to Satisfy Global Audiences' Appetite

26 April 2015 8:13 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Avengers: Age of Ultron': Chris Evans as Captain America and Chris Hemsworth as Thor 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' review: More of same in 'The Avengers' gargantuan sequel Someday somebody's going to make a superhero tentpole movie that doesn't involve the fate of the world or lay waste to vast chunks of God's green earth. Writer/director Joss Whedon, he of the numbingly gargantuan action sequence, is not that somebody. And yet to blame him for not following up 2012's The Avengers, the third highest grossing film ever made, with My Dinner with Thor is not realistic. It would also be a shame. Whedon, by any fair accounting, marshaled enormous reserves of wit and flair to slam-dunk the first film, a mighty achievement considering he needed to establish the Avengers series as the all-important sun around which an entire solar system of individual comic book properties would revolve. For the inevitable round two, »

John Ostrander on the Mighty Marvel Movie Monster

26 April 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

In a few days the new Avengers film, Age of Ultron, will be opening here in the States. It’s already opened in some overseas markets and, by all accounts, is doing very well. Seems like a good time to look back at the output in general of Marvel Studios.

Not all of Marvel’s characters’ appearances onscreen have come from Marvel Studios; stalwarts like the Fantastic Four, The X-Men, and Spider-Man have been made elsewhere (although Spidey’s next appearance will be coordinated with Marvel Studios and, in fact, will probably be in the next Captain America film). Those appearances have been, shall we say, a bit spotty in quality. The two Ff films were anything but fantastic.

However, by and large, the output of Marvel Studios has been first-rate. There have been a few hiccups, such as the second Iron Man film and the second Thor film as well, »
